Take a trip down memory lane as we share a crazy moment at the podium, an amazing posterization, an absolute on-court fail or a memorable shooting performance from the postseason of the National Basketball Association in This Day in NBA Playoffs History.
If you are a diehard New York Knicks fan, you can probably breakdown this moment off the top of your head like nothing. For everyone else, though, here you go. During Game 3 of the 1999 Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers at Madison Square Garden, the Knicks were down by three with 11.9 seconds remaining. At best, New York was hoping for a game-tying three-pointer. Following the inbounds pass, which was nearly stolen, Larry Johnson struggled to break free and find some space to shoot the ball. So, with time running out, LJ launched a prayer with Antonio Davis all over him. The refs called a foul on the play, Johnson knocked down the shot and the Garden crowd went absolutely nuts.
Even with all those wide-ranging emotions coursing through his veins, Johnson was able to remain focus, complete the four-point and help give the Knicks a 92-91 win.
